In this book, young readers find out about Zeus, a figure in Greek mythology and the leader of the Olympians-the gods and goddesses who were worshiped by the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that Zeus and his followers defeated an earlier race of gods-the Titans-in a battle that burned the Earth's surface. Zeus established a home for himself and the other Olympian gods and goddesses above Mount Olympus, the tallest mountain in Greece. From that height, he kept a close eye on human affairs and when he felt it was necessary, he punished rule-breakers. Readers will be enthralled by the adventure as they learn about the legends and legendary creatures of Greek mythology through the labors of Zeus.
